  • Hinsdale's Delaney Beil Honored by Daines

    For The Courier|May 18, 2016

    U.S. Senator Steve Daines recognized Delaney Beil, a fifth-generation Montana rancher and Hinsdale High School senior. Delaney is a nationally certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), and will soon be receiving her state certification. Here is Senator Daines' statement to Congress: "Mr. President, I rise today to recognize a Hinsdale High School senior, Delaney Beil. Delaney is described by her EMT instructor, Dorothy Jensen, as, 'a determined team player, who is committed to her...

  • New Baseball Complex on the Horizon

    Thom Schultz, For The Courier|May 18, 2016

    Take me out to the ball game! As you may or may not know, the Glasgow Reds’ American Legion Baseball program was donated 26 acres of land just west of the old BLM building (now Big Sky Auto Accessories) on Hwy. 2 for a new Legion field. The current field located at Sullivan Park has had issues with flooding, contaminated water and, many, many more problems. It is safe to say the community is due for an upgrade. This new parcel of property will not only be big enough for a new Legion field, but an entire complex, with possibly up to four new f... Full story

  • Swing Choir Set to Rock Ridgerunners

    May 18, 2016

    A young, charismatic choir director capable of arranging charts on the fly is a rare thing in any community. Way out here in the Last Best Place, it's a special blessing indeed. Stopping into the rehearsal room at GHS this past Sunday, I was taken aback by the ample enthusiasm, harmony and cohesion on display. Teacher Luree Green-Chappell has obviously got a way with her students, as most interested parties in town are already well aware. The GHS Swing Choir will be appearing at Ridgerunners on...

  • GPD Reminder To Pet Owners

    Parker Kulczyk, The Courier|May 18, 2016

    Glasgow Police Department has had recent complaints of dogs chasing runners, walkers or other pedestrians. The department would like the community to contact them with the address and description of the dog if there is a problem. GPD would also like to remind dog owners to follow leash laws and keep their dogs tied up outside if they are vicious and/or aggressive around people or other dogs. The department does not want to impose repercussions or fines, but will do so if offenses keep occurring. Multiple offenses can lead to permanent removal... Full story

  • Confidence in Love

    Kristine Bowman, Valley County Voices|May 18, 2016

    Two days before the conference, a friend asked, “Do you have any expectations?” With certainty, I immediately responded, “No! I’m just looking forward to a day where I’m removed from my responsibilities. I won’t have to worry about kids; I don’t want to think about my store; I don’t have to prepare meals; it’s bound to be a great day.” The Northeast Montana Women’s Conference “Confidence in Love” came at the perfect time for me. It truly was the best Mother’s Day gift I could receive. From the moment I heard the gravel of the church parkin...

  • A Little of This and That

    Sandy Laumeyer, Just a Thought|May 18, 2016

    Several days ago, as I was planting some sweet peppers, I thought about how good it felt to have my hands in the dirt. I thought how comforting it was to physically connect with the earth. While I was planting the peppers, I was also thinking about other vegetables I want to plant in my garden and the strawberry plants that were waiting for me in my kitchen sink. It reminded me of other gardens I’d planted over the years. Gardens that produced food for my family. Food that I also shared with other people. There’s just something about put...

  • Satellite Cable Dish or Antenna

    Virgil Vaupel, Thanks for Listening|May 18, 2016

    My first draft of this week’s column went off into cyber space never to return. While reaching for my coffee, I accidentally hit ctrl and something else and off it went, hurtling at 1.6 million miles per hour through the universe. I tried hitting that little circular blue arrow, but ... no go ... then I tried the search thingie, but my search came up as empty as OJ’s search for the “real killers.” I had already saved it, but that window that says something like “you have made changes to the text, do you want to save the changes before cl...

  • Discussing Dandelions

    May 18, 2016

    I was thrilled to read the Doctors’ cure for yellow jaundice in the late 1920s was dandelions. I am mortified when I see deadly chemicals being poured onto these delicious leaves. I know they can be a nuisance. Where I grew up in Pennsylvania Dutch Country, the sprouting of those leaves out of the ground indicated spring was near and the tradition of dandelion greens, hot bacon dressing, boiled potatoes and hard boiled eggs (from Easter) made my mouth water. Most of the time the bacon dressing was from a jar, Wos-Wit (brand) you can find it o...

  • A Few Hard Truths

    Michael Burns, Political Opinion|May 18, 2016

    A conservative is a fellow standing athwart history yelling, ’Stop!’ At least that is how patron saint of the modern conservative movement, William F. Buckley defined it. As I travel across our great district talking to voters, I often try to define the terms liberal and conservative in today’s political climate. Amongst a farrago of definitions for what a conservative is, I think Buckley’s assessment is accurate. This election, cycle conservatives are yelling “stop” to excessive political correctness, federal overreach and unnecessary...

  • Knudsen Replies to 'Tasteless Mailer'

    Casey Knudsen, Political Opinion|May 18, 2016

    When I began my campaign for the Montana House of Representatives District 33, I planned on running a clean campaign, because if I have learned one thing growing up on the Hi-Line, it is that a man’s handshake is his word. My opponent and I agreed the very first time we met to be civil, to focus on the issues important to this district and not to found our campaigns on baseless attacks. My opponent, however, has recently sent out a mailer full of lies and deceit aimed at defaming me in the eye of the public. I am writing today to tell every r...

  • Small Town Summers

    Gwen Cornwell, Remember When|May 18, 2016

    School will soon be out and kids will soon need to be entertained. Remember when we spent the summers playing hopscotch, kick the can, some version or the other of baseball, Anti-I-Over, or tag? What about Hide and Seek. Do the young ones still do that? Maybe you could get Mom to pack a picnic lunch and you and a friend could wander off for the day. Of course, that was back in the days you didn’t even think of child abductors (or if you did, you might have one of those thoughts that Moms have. Thinking if someone took them they would return t...

  • Glasgow Boys Four-peat at Districts

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|May 18, 2016

    GEORGIE KULCZYK THE COURIER For the fourth year in a row, the Glasgow boys' track team has claimed first place at the district 2B meet. The top tier of the awards podium was decorated with red and white in 11 events, with 23 other placers filling in the gaps. Despite nursing a sore knee, leading the boys to the win was stand-out Benji Phillips with three individual wins and a second-place finish in one event. Head coach Tim Phillips said, "We're really just focusing on competing but doing it...

  • Nashua Girls Snag Second Place at District Meet

    Georgie Kulczyk, The Courier|May 18, 2016

    The Nashua lady tracksters earned an impressive second-place trophy for their efforts at the District 3-C Track Meet held May 14. Impressive because they only had six girls competing for points. Leading the way for the Porcupines was Taylor Laumeyer with two first-place and one second-place throws, a third-place finish in the 400m run (PR), and a fourth-place long jump finish. Laumeyer also achieved a PR in both the discus and the javelin. Senior Faith Keys placed second in the discus, third in...
